Eggs in potato nests served with fresh veggies on the side. Kid-friendly meal that is super healthy and easy to prepare.
- 2-3 medium potatoes grated
- 1 teaspoon salt
- pinch of pepper to taste (optional)
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
In a large bowl lined with a gauze sheet, grate the potatoes on the largest holes side.
When finished grating, bring the ends of the gauze sheet together to make a sack. Wring out the liquid while twisting the gauze really tight and squeezing and forcing most of the liquid out. *If you don't have a gauze sheet, you can use a paper towel.
Transfer the potatoes back into a ball and mix in the oil and salt. Add bit pepper to taste.
Take a muffin pan and coat with a bit of cooking oil spray or a bit of regular oil all around the edges.
Take the grated potato mixture and distribute equal amounts in the muffin pan. Press the potato mixture with your hands up the sides, until you form a nest.
Bake these at 425 F for about 15 minutes, until the potatoes start turning golden brown around the edges.
After you have baked the nests, remove from the oven. Crack your eggs in each of the nests.
Turn the oven down to 350 F and bake for about 10-15 minutes. Depending on how runny you want the eggs you can adjust the cooking time to less.
Serve these up with fresh veggies to your kids liking or simply add baby carrots and fresh cucumbers which are every kids favorite.
